Reading the First Book!



Once the first six words had been successfully read from the cards a few times, I pulled out the book.

“THIS is going to be the very first book you will read!  Yes, you are going to read this whole thing, and I am going to help you.  We don’t have to read it all today, but let’s just start with the first page.”
